Strangers regularly stop this mum in the street to say her baby DAUGHTER is a mini Boris Johnson thanks to her unruly mop of blonde hair - and her doctor was the first to point out the uncanny resemblance.

Bethany Jeeves was stunned when five-month-old Lottie Craigie was born with a shock of long, thick silvery hair that midwives admired while she was in hospital.

Since then little Lottie's 'do has taken on a life of its own and regardless of what 22-year-old mum Bethany does to it - including wetting, washing and brushing it - it sticks up in the air.

This unruly mop of blonde hair causes Bethany to be stopped every time she leaves the house with admiring passers-by flocking round her pram commenting on how Lottie's do is just like the PM's.

Bar worker Bethany, who is currently on maternity leave, said she was initially taken aback when her GP first made the comparison during one of Lottie's check-ups, but concedes she's now used to it.

Even Lottie's big sister, two-year-old Mia Craigie is getting in on the act, telling everyone she meets 'my sister looks like Boris Johnson'.

Bethany, from March, Cambridgeshire, said: "I can't even leave the house without someone stopping me in the street, commenting on her hair and saying she looks like a mini Boris.

"I think it's because her hair is so blonde, it's so light, and it's crazy - it goes wherever it wants.

"I didn't know what to do with her hair at first. I'd wet it, wash it, brush it and it would still stick up in the air.

"It was getting longer and longer and it would just stick up, it was getting to the point I was having to spend more time on her hair than my own.

"The first person that made the Boris Johnson comparison was the GP when I took her in for her check-up.

"When he made the comment I sat there like 'oh, ok'. As she's a girl I was a bit touchy but it was meant in a light-hearted way.

"The more and more people started saying it you get used to it so now I just reply 'yeah I know'.

"Even my two-year-old caught on to what everyone else was saying, now she tells everyone 'my sister looks like Boris Johnson'."

The mum-of-two said she first had her suspicions that Lottie was going to have a good head of hair when she started experiencing severe heartburn during her pregnancy.

Bethany said: "Her hair didn't show up on any ultrasounds but I had constant severe heartburn and was on medication from the doctors, it was awful.

"Everyone made jokes about how hairy she was going to be."

In February Lottie was born weighing 8lb 2oz and with a shock of silvery blonde hair.

Bethany said: "When she was first born her hair was long, thick and almost silver.

"All the midwives were coming to see because they couldn't believe her hair - the colour and that she had lots of it. They said they'd never seen a baby with hair like that. As it changed colour it got blonder and longer and longer."

Bethany said Lottie looks older than her tender age due to her luscious locks, and that she has more hair than many toddlers.

Bethany said: "Her hair is well past her neck so I'm able to put her hair in little ponytails and pigtails now.

"Because the top bit is so long, the pigtails are long so she looks older because she has so much hair.

"I've got friends who have children that are about two and her hair is probably longer than theirs.

"Lottie's hair is crazy and it's so blonde, in the light her hair is almost white.

"Obviously I don't think she looks like Boris because she's my daughter, but I do get why people make the comparison, it doesn't faze me anymore.

"I wouldn't change anything about her hair for the world."
